The Surgery project consisted of work in several departments including new facilities for: Hemodialysis, PACU, three new surgical suites, and a patient holding area for the new SICU department. The project also included a 10,000 SF mechanical penthouse located on the second floor roof above the active surgical rooms below.
Due to the sensitive nature of the departments located around the project, daily attention to noise and infectious control and scheduling of invasive work was paramount.
The work also included new chillers on the 7th floor penthouse which required the use of a substantial 500 ton crane and the closing of East Blvd for its assembly and disassembly. Safety was imperative as the load traveled over the active hospital. Careful preparation paid off as the work was completed without incident.
